Sam Sang in Practice: Early Lessons from Pilot Implementation

This study sheds light on the Sam Sang Directive in Lao PDR, its objectives, processes and outcomes to date as well as practical challenges.
The study particularly focuses on identifying alignment and practical roles and responsibilities of government agencies and their staff under the directive at the provincial, district and village levels.
